When I was about 3 or so my Grandfather gave me a pile of stamps and a match box. The task was to put the 1p stamps in the match box. I guess it was a cheap and safe way of keeping me occupied whilst he did other tasks. I don’t recall the other tasks, but I do recall the event and I still have the 1p stamp.
Over time I was intrigued by stamps and like many children of my generation, I took up stamp collecting. Later on I became immersed in my family history which in turn lead me to local history and postcards.
This blog is the beginning of a project that I am working on, so I do hope you will stop by again.
